Speak.

The goal of this blog is to share what we are reading.  If we are reading the same things, great.  If we read different things, even better.  The goal is to create a community of readers sharing what we learn.  Recommend good books, shun bad ones.  You don’t have to finish the book to post.  You could’ve read the first page and decided you just had to share it.  The more people we have speaking, the more encouraged and empowered we will all be to read and share more.  There is no penalty if you don’t post, it would just be nice.

  8. Notes for posting:
  • I would recommend titling the post with the name and author of the book.
  • It would also be nice to find a pic of the book if you can.  I usually just search using images.google.com.
  • Add which genre category (or categrories) the book would be in by clicking the boxes on the right-hand side.  (The meta categrory is for talking about the blog rather than a book.)
  • Include who you are somewhere in the post because for some reason, it doesn’t show the author of posts.
  • Make sure to Publish your posts so we can all see them– blue button on the right-hand side.
